Top Ten Actors Who Could Be the Next Indiana JonesBKAllmighty Lucasfilm announced, in May, 2015, that a fifth Indiana Jones movie is on the horizon (although as of June, 2015 we're not exactly sure how far away that horizon is). And with that, a lot of people are expecting the titular role to be recast for a reboot. But who do we think deserves a shot at the iconic role? This list compiles the best candidates.
The Top Ten
He's the number one choice as far as everyone is concerned and its impossible not to see why. He got Spielberg's attention (result: Jurassic World) and after seeing that film, its even easier to imagine the newly-crowned A-list actor in the role. - BKAllmighty
Funny and has good action sequences easily a good Indy jones
He would be a good one actually - Therandom

I don't know why, but Tom Hardy just seems to fit like hand in glove for the role. His age is just right, he has a bad ass, sort of toned down, mysterious personality, he just seems to fit the bill of a serious, seasoned adventurer who has seen his share of things, with something dark about his personality yet underlying good.
Remember the bad ass stunts in the original movies. A new Indiana needs to be tough, rugged and a true physical actor that can carry the anti hero role. He can also bring the charm and humor, but all the other suggestion are soft, goofy pretty boys that don't have the chops. Hardy is the clear choice if possible.
With his versatility and good acting chops, Tom Hardy sounds like a fine choice to fill Indy's shoes (to me, at least). - BKAllmighty
I was watching Fury Road last night, and thought, "There's Indiana Jones! "
Since all the hype and buzz is surrounding Chris Pratt at the moment, you're probably not going to hear many people mention Aaron Eckhart and Indiana Jones in the same sentence (except for me, of course). The actor's not too busy these days so scheduling wouldn't be a problem, and he's definitely got what it takes to embrace the challenge of playing a character of this size, I think. Maybe I'll - BKAllmighty
You not only have to be handsome, you have to be cute, you have to be adorable, you have to be funny without trying, you have to be irresistible and any believable slightly nerdy professor, and you still have to be tough and able to do some of the stunts to get good shots. Aaron can totally pull all that off.
He's done both action and comedy before and he's got the calm-and-cool demeanor he needs to play a role such as this. I say ok! - BKAllmighty
He was considered to be the most likely choice a number of years ago. With Chris Pratt in the picture, his chances aren't looking quite as good, although he could still surprise us and win the role. - BKAllmighty
He's a suitable Deadpool, which blends action and comedy well enough together, so why couldn't he be a fitting Indiana Jones? If next year's 'Deadpool' turns into a smash hit (which I figure it will) maybe his name will start spreading across other people's lists. - BKAllmighty
NO he sucks he ruined the green lantern franchise he's going to ruin the deadpool franchise (again) now you people want him to ruin the Indiana Jones franchise. You people make me sick P. S the deadpool movie is gonna bomb
His rough-around-the-edges look seems pretty fitting for the role, doesn't it? I think so. He's tough as well as funny and those two things are essential for playing Jones. - BKAllmighty
Why not? They're considering him to be a viable candidate to play a potential future 007. Why not Indiana Jones? Once you move beyond the skin colour debate you have a terrific actor for the role. I'm definitely ok with this idea. - BKAllmighty
There's no harm in saying that Harrison Ford could still play the character. He's showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon and if he's still able to wow us playing Han Solo then of course he can still play Indy! - BKAllmighty
There is only one hero.
One day Ford is gonna die. We need new blood for the role sooner or later.
He's the true Indy - PeeledBanana
He's a little on the older side to be taking over the role, I think, but that doesn't mean that I can't imagine him playing Indy. He'd need to mask his accent, of course, to pull it off. Probably gain a few pounds, also. - BKAllmighty
Certainly more worthy than Chris Pratt!
I added Robert due to an unconfirmed report released a few years back suggesting that he was being scouted for the role. I'm not sure why Lucasfilm wanted him but if they saw something in him then maybe there's something that I am missing. - BKAllmighty
Okay yes that would be perfect for an indiana jones comedy
I guess Christian Bale could pull of the role. Not sure he really has the look for it, but getting the characterization right is the main thing and I'm almost certain he'd be able to do it. - BKAllmighty
No no no no no no.
Sunshine on Leith crooner MacKay is the British version of Chris Pratt.
Alex pettyfer, age 26 born April 10,1990 known for magic mike,storm breaker, endless love etc.
If I could be so bold, watching Nathan's portrayal of Captain Reynolds in Firefly and especially Serenity, all the qualities of a perfect Indiana Jones are expressed in perfect fashion. Intensity, humor, and physicality are true to form. I truly hope he could be considered.
